Description Rohan Dhruva 2007-11-13 16:58:55 EST
Description of problem:
Right now on Fedora 8, if I install compiz-fusion with the plugins and ccsm from
the updates repo, and then enable "Desktop Effects" using System - Preferences -
Look and Feel, the two effects listed there are enabled. However after that, any
changes I make using ccsm are not effected. IMHO, desktop-effects should handle
this compiz vs. compiz-fusion situation gracefully, because it is confusing to
find that "Desktop Effects" are enabled yet changes from ccsm do not take place !

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to System - Preferences - Look and Feel - Desktop Effects 
2. Enable the desktop effects there
3. Make some changes / add / remove effects using ccsm
Actual results:
Changes made through ccsm are not affected.

Expected results:
Changes made through ccsm should be affected.

I have also noticed this. Initially I assumed modifying OPT4 from gconf to ccp
in /usr/bin/gnome-wm would force desktop-effects to load compiz-fusion with the
correct configuration backend. This however had no effect. Perhaps there should
be a switch in the script for compiz-fusion? I really have done very little
testing on this issue and moved to the 0.6.99 compiz-fusion release instead.
Regardless, a fix would be greatly appreciated.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2009-01-09 02:25:05 EST
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
